To all our patrons,

We want to let you know that the time has come to retire a couple of file formats. We are no longer going to be deriving .ogg or .ogv files. Their usage was never high and have dwindle to almost zero. But since we create so many they use precious worker and storage capacity that be put to other uses.

Of course if you want those formats you can download other files and use offline converters such as ffmpeg to create them as needed.se precious worker capacity that is better put to use for other needs.

since this change, I can not view any of the mp4 files I have uploaded,all of the mp4 files I uploaded prior to this date and change appear fine, and since this change, none I have uploaded appear.
making this site far less useful than it was before.

likely the OS/browser you're using. have you tried others?

if this is my OS / browser, then why do all of the previous mp4 files I uploaded prior to that January 11 2020 date work currently now?? and all after that date give me the error 102630?

https://archive.org/details/20200122aj/20200123+aj.mp4 is working for me on mac osx. i'll investigate but i'll speculate that the older items have .ogv files and we stopped making them recently. so your browser OS possibly does not like the flavor of mp4 you uploaded so it is playing the ogv when they're present and just failing to play the other item because there is no ogv. did it buffer? did you give it a long time to try to start, like 15 minutes? a 2:45:00 mp4 that is not properly formatted for web use will take a very long time to start.

It does not buffer. It just pops up with the error, and doesn't even display any of the files names in the list

until the bug is resolved i'd suggest renaming the files using .mpeg4 in place of .mp4. that way the system will derive a web-friendly .mp4 that should play fine.

Well I just tried that, I renamed it to mpeg4 file, and I get the same exact error.

and I was able to play the mpeg4 vid on my computer before uploading it. any other ideas?

if you're referring to https://archive.org/details/20200209aj it is not done deriving files.
